2020 Honda Passport SUV: Features, Inventory & Review
Honda already boasts an impressive range of SUVs, with their roster including firm favourites from the CR-V to the Pilot. However, their upcoming 2020 Honda Passport aims to add a fresh slant and appeal to a new range of buyers. What does the new model offer?
2020 Honda Passport: A Mid-Sized SUV with Personality
The new Passport nestles in the middle of the Honda SUV range when it comes to body size, being around 25cm longer than the CR-V and 15cm shorter than the Pilot.
Designed specifically for the North American market, it's aimed firmly at family buyers who want a little extra performance and personality to go along with convenience and carrying capacity.
As such, it's a comfortable, mid-sized five-seater SUV that offers plenty of cargo space, but which also contains plenty of power underneath the attractive bodywork.

Performance and Mechanical
The underlying mechanical design is based around the tried and tested Pilot model, and so can be expected to avoid the quirks and teething troubles that many new releases suffer from. The standard engine is a 3.5L V6 design producing 280 horsepower, channelled through a 9-speed automatic transmission to front-wheel drive as standard. However, there's an all-wheel-drive version available, which also benefits from intelligent variable torque management.
As this is basically the drivetrain from the substantially larger Pilot, the 2020 Passport won't lack power and performance whatever the circumstances. To make the most of this, the car also features snow, sand and mud driving modes to adapt handling to the conditions.
Safety and Convenience
But it's not just about performance. As a family SUV, safety and convenience are both high up on the priority list. Standard features in this area include:
- Automatic emergency braking, Adaptive cruise control.
- Lane keep assist, departure warning and departure mitigation, Forward collision warning.
- Blind spot warnings and rear cross-traffic monitoring.
- A full complement of airbags.
- Front and rear parking sensors.
- Power tailgate.
- Heated side mirrors with auto-dimming and power-folding.
With all these benefits as standard, the Passport offers great savings compared to rivals which only offer them as paid extras.
The Passport's passenger cabin once again shows its close relationship to the Pilot, being an almost direct transplant. This is welcome, as it means there's a healthy list of features included as standard: Leather upholstery, Heated front seats,8" touchscreen infotainment system and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on every model.
Extra Personality Packages
To tailor the Passport to your specific needs, it's available with two packages of additional features. The Adventure Package adds outdoor life features including running boards, a trailer hitch and a roof bin.
Alternatively, the Urban Package adds under-body spoilers, roof rails and interior cargo storage bins to make it even more suited to daily city driving.
All in all, the latest version of the Honda Passport for sale in 2020 offers an excellent combination of performance, comfort, value and personality, making it a great addition to the already healthy Honda SUV range.
